Donald Trump insists shutdown will not end unless Congress funds border wall
- ‘I can’t tell you when the government is going to reopen’
- Funding for quarter of federal programs expired on Friday
Donald Trump has marked Christmas Day by insisting the partial shutdown of the federal government will last until his demand for funds to build a wall on the US-Mexico border is met.
The US government partially shut down on Saturday, and there is not yet any sign of tangible efforts to reopen agencies closed by a political impasse over Trump’s demand for border wall funds.
